Footloose (1984): Fun, light, entertaining. This generation-defining classic has a lot more depth than one would expect, even with an upbeat 80s pop playlist for a soundtrack. Recommended? An ideal 80s style film.

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Great Gatsby (2013): Beautiful, tragic, engaging. Despite some poorly executed artistic work, this adaptation captures the superficiality of the era and depth of its characters, making good use of its eclectic but suitable soundtrack. Recommended? Baz Luhrmann makes this timeless 1920s literary classic accessible to a modern society almost a century later and such efforts deserve to be seen.

Ginger & Rosa (2012): Dry, simple, disturbing. The acting was quite good, but the story takes a very long time to develop into a climactic but lacklustre conclusion, and the movie overall could have benefited from a consistent score. Recommended? This is not for a sit down movie night.

Moonrise Kingdom (2012): Interesting, strange, unpredictable. There are many aspects of this movie that are disturbing in one way or another, but the unique stylistic elements and sparse but well placed humour make this a unique and quirky treat. Recommended? This is an entertaining piece, but definitely not meant for those of the same age group as the main actors.

Et maintenant on va où? (Where do we go now?) (2011): Funny, interesting, intense. This movie has a simple storyline that rests on major issues and recurring themes that mould together and come full circle by the end, creating an experience that is humourous at first and becomes quite serious and emotional as the plot thickens. Recommended? A fascinating, but somewhat upsetting film.

Flight (2012): Intense, dramatic, humourous. There are a few dry spells during the middle section of this film, but they do not take away from the frightening action sequence and character development of Whip Whitaker, brought to life fantastically by Denzel Washington. Recommended? Although it may be a bit slow at times, the story is very engaging and entertaining for mature audiences.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Rebelle (War Witch) (2012): Emotional, disturbing, graphic. This gruesome look into the Congolese war captures the struggle of the child soldiers with the actors’ captivating performances, as well as the beautiful visual work and good direction overall. Recommended? An engaging journey that will teach as much as it entertains.

Photo Credit: IMDB

El labarinto del faunto (Pan’s Labryinth) (2006): Artistic, quirky, entertaining. This fantasy adventure is brought to life by the intricate visual effects and art direction, as well as the characters who are all meant to invoke emotion from the audience at some point in the movie. Recommended? This is not for the faint of heart, but fun nonetheless.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Anna Karenina (2012): Beautiful, emotional, reflective. The unique visuals and art direction are well-executed, although confusing at times, and the story has its fair share of both good moments and irrational turns. Recommended? This would be best for those who would appreciate romantic dramas.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Intouchables (2011): Inspiring, emotional, humourous. For such serious undertones, this uplifting film has a comedic side and very likeable characters, telling a story of friendship, growth and redemption. Recommended? A must see film.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

End of Watch (2012): Intense, dramatic, entertaining. The plot blends realism and drama very artistically and builds up strategically to an emotional, hard-hitting end, despite a few off-putting moments. Recommended? This deep journey offers a new and welcome perspective on the life of cops in south L.A.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

She’s The Man (2006): Funny, engaging, light. This movie is nothing short of a laugh a minute with its surprisingly well thought out plot, save a few subpar actors and characters and some teen drama fluff. Recommended? The perfect light comedy during a stressful time.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Hitchcock (2012): Witty, informative, engaging. While it lacked a vintage vibe that would have helped to make it feel more like an event in the 1960s, the perspective shown on that part of the legendary director’s life is fascinating and beautifully brought to life by the characters around him and cleverly placed humour. Recommended? For anyone who has seen and enjoyed Psycho, this movie provides an interesting insight on the making of the film and its pop cultural impact.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

12 Years a Slave (2013): Emotional, disturbing, intense. Few films are ever of such high quality in most every aspect, acting, directing, writing, production design, music; this is by far one of them. Recommended? This movie may be too harsh for more sensitive viewers, but deserves every accolade that it is likely to come across in the months to come.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Captain Phillips (2013): Intense, emotional, engaging. After a weak opening, the real push behind this film comes when the action kicks in and the excitement lasts right through to the end of the film. Recommended? Definitely one of 2013′s gems.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Home Alone (1990): Humourous, fun, entertaining. This family comedy maximizes laughs where action is absent and has a great score to back it up. Recommended? A modern Christmas classic.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004): Mysterious, engaging, unique. Where this movie lacks in production value, it makes up for in the overall story and acting and grows more intriguing as it goes on. Recommended? A fascinating story worth watching.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Frozen (2013): Enchanting, magical, entertaining. The fantastic soundtrack and dazzling animation bring to life this imaginative story with loveable characters and thoughtful themes and undertones. Recommended? This modern tale deserves to be among Disney’s classics.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013): Exciting, emotional, dramatic. This movie takes a while to take off, but once it does, there is a great deal of action, character development and transformations from cheap superficiality to deep struggles. Recommended? All sequels should be able to recover from the issues with their prequels like this one.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Good Will Hunting (1997): Fascinating, profound, inspiring. Far more crude than it needs to be, but an overall interesting story with likeable characters and a strong moral base. Recommended? A feel-good journey worth watching.

Hors de Prix (Priceless) Funny, romantic, hectic. While the beginning involves many plot turns that don’t seem to make sense and the many of the main character’s decisions seem irrational, the story picks up as the main characters learn the real tolls of the rich life, and the light-hearted nature of this film makes it very enjoyable. Recommended? Mostly for those looking to wind down with a good laugh (and also don’t mind reading subtitles if necessary).

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

X-Men: Fascinating, humorous, entertaining. The plot is very well developed and all aspects of the special effects were executed with class, all showcasing interesting characters never afraid to exhibit a witty one-liner. Recommended? A movie that can be both this much fun and serious at the same time has a little something for everyone.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Shutter Island (2010): Freaky, suspenseful, clever. While certain events towards the beginning of the film seem unintelligible, the plot takes many interesting plot turns and the mysterious and the quirky characters make this film even more entertaining. Recommended? Every minute of this film should be viewed with the utmost attention to details.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Inherit the Wind (1960): Profound, humorous, insightful. The performances of both Spencer Tracy and Fredric March are superb in this film adaptation of the real life Monkey Trial of 1925, a story that brilliantly displays the early stages of the evolutionism vs. creationism debate and the importance of higher thinking. Recommended? This film is an inquisitive journey for atheists, agnostics and believers alike.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Dances with Wolves (1990, Special Edition): Historic, heartfelt, captivating. While the first hour could be greatly condensed as to quicken the pace, the respectable acting and storyline are complimented by stunning visuals and effects. Recommended? While the extended version is quite captivating in itself, the added content may prove unnecessary for some, but this film is definitely worth seeing.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Green Mile (1999): Dramatic, emotional, tragic. A truly great screenplay complete with memorable characters that will be loved and hated, on their journeys to truth and justice. Recommended? This is one film that definitely should not be overlooked.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Iron Man 3 (2013): Intense, funny, entertaining. As with the previous Iron Man films, the actors fit their roles perfectly and add some spice to boot; but unlike the previous one, the story is full of action, exciting plot turns and a genuinely interesting plot. Recommended? A big improvement over number 2, possibly the best one in the trilogy.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Citizen Kane (1941): Artistic, mysterious, boring. The filmmaking is clearly exemplary for many films to come, but the majority of the film consists of 2 hours chronicling the details of the life of Charles Kane which are indifferent to the purpose and outcome of the film. Recommended? This film would probably only be of interest to fans of classic cinema, as there is not much here for everyone else.

French Immersion (2011): Hilarious, light, disjointed. While the storyline is quite sparse, it produces enough laughs to make up for it, like any good comedy should. Recommended? For anyone with, at the very least, a basic knowledge of Canada, Quebec and the French language.

 

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Saving Private Ryan (1998): Intense, gory, impressive. The effects and visuals that make up this film are of the class that has given Spielberg the positive reputation that he has today, and while a serious and respectful tone is maintained throughout the film, writer Robert Rodat cleverly adds some humour and quirky moments as well. Recommended? This wartime epic is an adventure well-worth the experience.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

No Country for Old Men (2007): Violent, slow, unclear. The direction and acting in this film are both well done, but the simple storyline is far too drawn out and, for the most part, lacks cohesion. Recommended? Not the most exciting film out there, but worth a try nonetheless.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

American Beauty (1999): Tragic, emotional, dramatic. Some of the subject matter is a bit unsettling, but the emotions and thematic depth coupled with Kevin Spacey’s amazing performance make for a thoroughly engaging movie experience. Recommended? A must-see film, especially for anyone who believes that their life is empty.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Philadelphia (1993): Engaging, informative, emotional. This movie tackles major issues and prejudices in a unique way, setting it apart from similar attempts, and the main characters are both strong, respectable and well-portrayed. Recommended? This is definitely worth watching.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Wrestler (2008): Brutal, emotional, mediocre. The story and growth of the main character and Mickey Rourke’s performance are the driving forces behind this film, for despite some depth, the overall story is dry and excessively explicit. Recommended? Not bad, but not great either.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Babel (2006): Mysterious, emotional, profound. While a bit confusing and disjointed at times, the theme of universal connectivity adds to the depth and experiences of the characters in all of the stories. Recommended? Babel has a good moral that can only be truly understood by actually seeing the film.

 

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

City of God (2002): Disturbing, intense, insightful. A horrific and gripping look into the ugly side of Brazil, graphically detailing the dangerous lives of young people involved with drugs, war and violence. Recommended? Anyone who enjoys American films exploiting extreme gang violence and drugs should try their hand at this, bearing in mind that the scariest thing about this movie is that it’s based on a true story.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Catch Me If You Can (2002): Clever, fascinating, long. The reputable cast and director make watching this true story that much more enjoyable, though the opening scene should have either been cut or played on more. Recommended? A little dry in spots, but entertaining nonetheless.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Babe (1995): Adorable, heartwarming, entertaining. The touching premise and subtle, but effective visuals bring the film to life, but the ending is a bit of a copout. Recommended? Must be seen by all animal lovers.

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009): Strange, incoherent, colourful. Somewhere deep down in this film lies a lesson about greed, but it is only reached after peeling through layers of poor storylines, unclear mumbling and the good visuals that hold this film together. Recommended? Beyond the merit of being Heath Ledger’s last film, it is more confusing and questionable than anything else.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Invictus (2009): Interesting, accessible, engaging. An appropriate and insightful look at one aspect of Mandela’s efforts to move his country away from the apartheid, and Morgan Freeman is perfect as Nelson Mandela. Recommended? Definitely worth seeing.

Captain America: The First Avenger: Engaging, inspiring, heartwarming. Action scenes are brilliantly put together, backing up a main character who truly demonstrates what it means to be a hero. Recommended? A worthwhile film for those who love comic book and action movies.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Forrest Gump: Simple, engaging, heartwarming. The touching screenplay is only further brought to life by Tom Hanks’ performance as the lovable lead character on his self-approving journey through life. Recommended? A must see film that will inspire all audiences.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy: Funny, light-hearted, entertaining. Despite a poor technical effort, certain poorly thought out moments and one particularly grotesque scene, an overall good laugh courtesy of a few reputably hilarious actors. Recommended? As a great source of escapism and a good laugh, but not to be taken too seriously.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: Abstract, quirky, entertaining. The unique approach towards creating this film following in style with graphic novels redefines “comic book film”, though certain plot transitions make the story somewhat confusing at first. Recommended? While particularly noteworthy for the style of direction, the romantically based storyline may not appeal to certain audiences.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Hugo: Imaginative, playful, artistic. While the storyline is quite slow in the beginning, the plot takes a more inspiring turn during the second half; the entire film backed up with beautiful art direction that could draw anyone to this simple Parisian train station. Recommended? Despite being labelled a “children’s” film, the meaning is transcendent of age.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Ides of March: Intriguing, intense, a bit confusing. While the tension and cutthroat nature of the modern political scene is well captured, the heavy and monotonous dialogue makes the film overall slow and a bit confusing, especially the first half. Recommended? Interesting as a political film, but otherwise not worthwhile.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Star Trek: Adventurous, light, entertaining. Although the storyline can be a bit confusing at times, the film sports a lot of action with huge efforts in the special effects department paying off; with a plotline deep enough to be noteworthy, but light enough to be enjoyed casually; and a cast who takes this piece from nerdy guilty pleasure to mainstream blockbuster. Recommended? While this film probably won’t go down in history as a classic, it is still worthwhile checking out.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Midnight in Paris: Funny, puzzling, thought-provoking. The beauty of Paris is well captured, the cast is stellar, and the story is as enchanting as the city itself; and with a writer/director like Woody Allen, a potentially dry and tedious storyline is more entertaining with subtle humour and mildly absurd dialogue. Recommended? Although this film probably isn’t a must see, it is a fun and worthwhile film to see.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Ce qu’il faut pour vivre (The Necessities of Life): Emotional, dramatic, eye-opening. The story manages to be both heart-warming and heart wrenching at the same time, and the symbolism portraying Tiivii’s journey to recovery throughout the film manages to remain subtle, yet effective. Recommended? This film is definitely worth checking out, as there is a little something in here for everyone.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

A Bug’s Life: Funny, playful, entertaining. Imaginative and punny in the typical Disney Pixar style, as well as the typical great animation and storyline. Recommended? For kids and kids at heart; and anyone who is or once was a fan of Disney Pixar films.

 

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Green Street Hooligans: Unsettling, gripping, emotional. A raw and gritty look into the dark side of the British “football” community; and despite a repulsive first few minutes, this film bears a decent plot and a cinema rarity of well filmed street fighting sequences. Recommended? While viewers outside the soccer community may appreciate this film as well, one would have to be quite sadistic to really enjoy it.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Troy: Emotional, violent, epic. Despite some historical and literary inaccuracies, the new perspective of the Trojan War allows viewers to distinguish for themselves who the good guys are, all the while fascinated with brilliant art direction, effects and soundtrack. Recommended? While this film will not help with a history class, it is still a must see, for there is something here for everyone.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Edward Scissorhands: Whimsical, heartfelt, original. The story of one of the most misunderstood characters shines through mediocre film making and an unsettling suburban setting, with expectant brilliance from the likes of Johnny Depp. Recommended? An overall enjoyable film worthwhile watching.

 

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Shining: Tense, intriguing, captivating. While slow at times, especially towards the beginning, this film has a building anxiety about it that does not stop until the very end, showcased through the evolving insanity of Jack Torrence, brilliantly portrayed by Jack Nicholson. Recommended? This thriller is unlike most others, which is all the more reason to watch it.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Skyfall: Intense, unpredictable, entertaining. This film combines classic Bond elements with a storyline equally accessible for those watching James Bond for the first time; with an unpredictable opening sequence, fantastic action scenes and a respectably humbling and humanizing side to the iconic character. Recommended? For both those who love Bond and who are unfamiliar with it, this film is enjoyable and impactful all the same.

 

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Great Escape: Slow, but clever and intriguing. This film can be divided into two parts: the first half dragging on with not much action and, for the most part, forgettable dialogue; and the second part exciting and suspenseful, leaving viewers waiting to see what will become of their favourite characters. Recommended? The last ninety minutes of this film are worthwhile sitting through the gruelling first part.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Pretty Woman: Fun, romantic, hilarious. Despite being branded as a “chick flick” (though to be honest, it is one), this film is very entertaining, thanks to the likes of Julia Roberts’ lovable and humourous spin on the broke prostitute, a catchy and well pieced together soundtrack and the story resembling an 1980′s My Fair Lady. Recommended? A good laugh and a great date night movie.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Descendants: Slow, tragic, intriguing. What the film lacks in pace, the emotional journey taken by the characters and overall calming beauty of the Hawaiian scenery and soundtrack make up for completely. Recommended? This film is worth seeing at some point in life, but nothing to rush to see.

 

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Prestige: Clever, mysterious, thought-provoking. Typical of Christopher Nolan, this movie promises a well thought out plot, great filmmaking, and likeable characters, subject only to minor flaws in the plot. Recommended? A good story, probably to be seen more than once.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Cloud Atlas: Intense, confusing, overwhelming. This film is a mix of high class production and unreachable goals, combining inconsistent hair and make-up work and visuals with a plot that boasts interconnectivity throughout human eras, but rarely delivers more connections than actors portraying different characters in different eras; if there is a deeper relevance behind this film, it is not a clear one. Recommended? While this film provides a complete and utter mind-freak, its ultimate impact is more perplexing than explanatory.

Black Swan. Psychological, disturbing, and a bit hectic at times. Great story and technical elements with an ending disturbingly relatable to anyone obsessed with perfection. Recommended? Not for the faint or innocent of heart.

The African Queen. Fun and somewhat clever, but climaxes at the beginning, slows down and doesn’t quite pick up again. Recommended? Not for everyone, or most at that, unless you crave an overrated classic.

Bridesmaids. Very funny, decent acting, but that was about it. The opening alone was unnecessarily trashy, as well as many pointless characters. Recommended? Only for a good laugh, not to be taken seriously.

Fight Club. A bit confusing, but surprisingly intriguing and very clever and concise storyline. Surely an ending unpredictable, at least to some extent. Recommended? A definite must-see, possibly more than once.

Photo Credit: IMDB

The Hangover. Funny, crude, and surprisingly suspenseful. Haven’t seen a comedy with this much mystery in a while, and Zach Galafinakis (if I spelled it right) was very entertaining. Recommended? Yes, but to be seen alone or with friends, not family.

How to Train Your Dragon. Fun, inspiring, heartwarming. Minor Hollywood typicalities, but overall well-made and meaningful. Recommended? Definitely great for the whole family.

Run Lola Run. Mysterious, action packed, thought-provoking. A bit repetitive, but the fascinating premise makes up for it. Recommended? Only if you know German, French, or don’t mind subtitles.

127 Hours. Gruesome, emotional, inspiring. Much more exciting than one may think. A good length as well. Recommended? A definite must see, if you can stand James Franco’s desperate and disgusting measures.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Gone With the Wind. Tragic, enchanting and above all lengthy (almost 4 hours!). Characters are emotionally gripping, but suspense and excitement only kicks in at the last 90 mins. Recommended? A bucket list item, but take a break every half hour.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Inglourious Basterds. Gory, disturbing, but brilliant nonetheless. Three most noteworthy aspects: acting, direction & screenplay. Recommended? Only for those who can stomach blatant genocide and graphic killing.

Photo Credit: IMDB

Photo Credit: IMDB

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Suspenseful, dramatic, but a bit slow. Tennessee Williams is a master with words, but leaves little action in this film for an audience to feast their eyes upon. Recommended? As a background film, not one to commit time to sitting and watching.

Tangled. Fun, humorous, clever. Not as enjoyable as the classic Disney films, but despite minor flaws, overall enjoyable. Recommended? For the Disney-obsessed child in all of us.

Batman Begins. A bit slow at first, but overall concise, feasible and entertaining. Special acknowledgement for visual effects and fight choreography. Recommended? Definitely worthwhile.

Taken. Brutal, suspenseful, action packed. Short film, but edge of your seat thrills throughout the majority of the film. Recommended? For a definite thrill.
